A ittle wave was bobbing along in the ocean, having a grand old time, until he notices the other waves in front of him, crashing against the shore. This is terrible, the wave says. Look what’s going to happen to me!
Then along comes another wave. It sees the first wave and it says to him: Why do you look so sad? The first wave says: You don’t understand! We’re all going to crash!
The second wave says: No, you don’t understand. You’re not a wave, you’re part of the ocean. ~ Mitch Albom, “Tuesdays With Morrie”
As Deepak Chopra says, “The surge of love that constantly upholds life is like the surge of the ocean that renews each wave. ”
